    [Scrum] When is the ball "out" of the scrum?

    Thanks for the reply. The book only refers to No. 8 so I see that and your point on wheeling. However, it still doesn't answer when he ball is actually "out" For example (assuming no other foul / illegal play) if the ball ends up under the chest of the flanker is that still considered to be "in"...

    [Scrum] When is the ball "out" of the scrum?

    The scrum ends when the ball comes out of the scrum in any direction except the tunnel, but what does "out" actually mean? My specific circumstances are:The ball is fed into the scrum and successfully hooked back. It ends up at the feet of the blind side flanker, who unbinds, picks up the ball...

    Mark - Gain in ground

    Sorry but another question from a new referee! (two in fact) 1, Mark is given to player, he then kicks the ball directly into touch - Gain in ground? (where is this is the good book?) 2, Mark is given to player, he then kicks the ball right through the opposition DBL - scrum back? (again where...

    Ruck - ball on the ground

    The definition of a ruck includes the ball being on the ground. If all other factors are in place (1 or more from each team, on their feet etc) but the ball is not on the floor (say its trapped on top of a player who has attempted to release it) is it a ruck and does law 16 apply? Many thanks

    Drop Out or scrum back

    I awarded a penalty inside black 22 (in at the side). Black No 10 puts in a huge kick and the ball goes (without touching another player) across the yellow DBL. I awarded a 22 drop out to yellow. Should I have offered the scrum back option? or would that only be from open play? Thanks Vince
